NATIONAL APPLESAUCE CAKE DAY | JUNE 6
Each year on June 6th, National Applesauce Cake Day recognizes a delicious and easy treat. This tasty applesauce cake offers an opportunity to share a slice (or two) of a cake that comes in a variety of recipes.
When it comes to applesauce cake, mixing in spices, nuts or dried fruit makes this cake a crowd-pleaser, too. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice are just a few spices to choose from. You might also like to add pecans or walnuts for some crunch. Raisins or chopped apples add a little extra natural sweetness and texture to this cake. Some bakers use homemade applesauce, but store-bought will do, too.
In any cake recipe, applesauce may be substituted for the butter or oil for a healthier alternative. It is also said that one-half cup of applesauce may be substituted for one egg in some baking recipes for those who have egg allergies.
